Subject: Gonna download this one soon!
After downloading and listening to most of this, I'm sorry to say the sound ranges from barely to not at all listenable. It's muddy all the way through. The keyboards and even the drums dissolve into a mush. There are pitch warbling spots and dropouts, including two really nasty, long ones in Truckin' and Dark Star. Worst of all, I couldn't make out hardly a word Pigpen was singing during Good Lovin', and finally had to turn it off. I'll stick with my very speedy soundboard until a true upgrade comes along.
I already know this show is awesome, since I've had a speedy tape of the key parts of it (Truckin, Dark Star, Sugar Mag, Good Lovin, etc.) for years. The fast jam in Dark Star is ecstatic, and Pig's at his salacious best on the Good Lovin' medley (hop in the saddle and ride). Listening to it now, it's not as crispy as a SB, but quite listenable and very good for a 72 audience tape. I will be downloading this one when I get a block of free time.
